Injury Expectations | Midweek Update | Week 12 - Footballguys

A review of the early week practice participation reports


***A.J. Green was cleared to return to practice by Dr. Robert Anderson earlier this week but didn't work out on Wednesday. That was reportedly a planned rest day, however, and there continues to be optimism that Green will return this week. Marvin Lewis told reporters, "From my seat, we'll see him out there." Green still needs to return to football-related activity and prove himself capable of practicing without any setbacks. Expect more detailed reports after Thursday and Friday practice.

***Sony Michel remained limited in practice coming out of New England's bye week but told reporters he felt "better" and "strong" on Wednesday. He will play this week.

***Marcus Mariota was cleared to throw on Wednesday but did very little. He confirmed he was unable to return to last week's game because nerve symptoms related to his stinger did not improve. As with his earlier season elbow injury, it becomes difficult to predict whether those symptoms will resolve quickly if they aren't improved within the first minutes after the injury. Consider him questionable -- but hopeful -- to play this week. Thursday's practice participation is critical. If he's not showing improvement, he will be limited at best on Monday night.
